Attendance at exercises which offer the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills required to undertake a key role or function is an essential part of developing commanders, responders and control room staff.
Exercises planners should ensure that specific interoperability objectives are included in their multi-agency exercises.
To assist organisations, we have produced an Exercise Assurance Framework to help with the planning of a one day multi-agency live play exercise allowing multiple staff to take part.
Other templates which may be useful include:
The JESIP Resilience Direct page also has a repository for organisations to share their exercise scenarios with others.
Testing and exercising is even more effective when the lessons identified from exercises are shared on JOL Online in order to lead to improved interoperability.
